For the last month, I've adopted a new walking program around my neighborhood. It's a 3 mile loop.
In 3 miles, I can process the day.
In 3 miles, I can write a new chapter in my head.
In 3 miles, I can connect with several neighbors on the way.
In 3 miles, I can lose weight. I have lost weight! So easy!
In 3 miles, I can change from an angry mother to a peaceful and inspired one.
My friend tells me that there's something about moving rhythmically through space--for a long time--that takes the rough edge off of life.
I go out one kind of woman, and I come back another.
I love it so much that I wish I had been a walker all this time.
Do you have any tips or inspiration for new walkers?
